Tigers caught on camera lounging in a Jacuzzi-sized watering hole; Elizabeth Claire-Alberts; MongaBay

Conservationists set up two camera traps near a watering hole in a Thai forest — and then they waited. The first animal to step in front of the lens was a male tiger (Panthera tigris), who took a dip in the natural pool before sauntering off. Not long after that, a type of wild cattle called a banteng (Bos javanicus) briefly stepped into view before getting spooked and sprinting away.

How to Visit Khao Yai National Park in Thailand; Nomadic Matt

Thailand – Dong Phayayen-Khao Yai Forest Complex

Khao Yai National Park is located about 2.5 hours north of Bangkok and is one of Thailand’s best national parks. Established in 1962, it was Thailand’s first national park and is now even a UNESCO World Heritage site.

I’d always heard great things about the park while I lived in the country. Despite living in Thailand for several years, I never managed to get there. But, luckily a got to play tour guide to a friend from Boston on a recent visit and used that as my excuse to finally make it there.

I can’t believe it took me so long.

The park is truly amazing. It’s filled with lush flora and fauna, tons of birds, waterfalls, beautiful hikes, a few wild elephants, and is empty of tourists.

Arriving at our guesthouse in the afternoon, we were just in time to make a half-day tour. This tour brought you to a few caves and a natural spring.
